Crowbirds presented two projects at the 14th American Association for Corpus Linguistics (AACL): “Annotating learner data for lexico-grammatical patterns: A comparison of software tools” and “Lexico-grammatical Patterns in First Year Writing across L1 Backgrounds,” Our first presentation compared the uses and performance of Biber tagger, MALT parser, and Stanford parser. Our second presentation analyzed the linguistic features of L1 writers compared to L2 writers.
The Crow team is growing! Our team at Purdue has started off the school year with two new undergraduate researchers, Emily Jones and Sarah Merryman.
Crow team members publish “Examining the Effectiveness of Corpus-Informed Instruction of Reporting Verbs in L2 First-Year College Writing” in L2 Journal 10.3.
Crow researchers presented half-day workshop titled “Exploring variation and intertextuality in L2 undergraduate writing in English: Using the Corpus and Repository of Writing online platform for research and teaching.” at the 2018 Teaching and Language Corpora (TaLC) conference in Cambridge, England.
